There was better news for Anton Blidh than Jakub Zboril coming out of Saturday’s morning skate for the Boston Bruins.
Blidh, who’s been dealing with an upper-body injury, skated at Warrior Ice Arena ahead of Boston’s game against the Tampa Bay Lightning. The forward, who had been playing some of his best hockey prior to his injury, isn’t quite ready to return just yet, though.
“Yeah, I think he’s making progress,” acting head coach Joe Sacco told reporters. “He will not be available to us tonight. But he’s making progress.”
While that’s certainly good news, the same cannot be said about Jakub Zboril.
“No, he’s going to be re-evaluated and re-examined again in the next few days and we’ll know more after that,” Sacco said. “He’s obviously out tonight, though.”
The Bruins recalled Oskar Steen and Jack Ahcan to provide some depth if needed.
